The Bittersweet Hour: a weekly(ish) podcast where Ims and Emily (resident emo girly guides) provide a tour of everything tasty the rock scene’s had to offer recently be it tour news, live reviews, juicy tunes, and more. Plus we get the odd lovely guest on, and find out what’s bitter or sweet with them.


In our first episode in a long time, our relaunch of sorts, Ims and Emily share stories from festy season, have a good old catch-up, introduce ourselves to new pals, and generally have a good old emo gossip. Get to know the Bittersweet team, and get to know what’s good in the world of alt.

And as a bonus, we recap on the best music that’s come out this year so far – and round up the best that’s yet to come. As well as a debrief on albums from Vukovi, Cavetown, Witch Fever, LS Dunes, Pinkshift, and Turnover, we delve into the upcoming releases from Boston Manor with frontman Henry Cox, and Architects with their very own Sam Carter.

Listen here! Oh, and we have stickers, and we’re sending free ones to anyone who writes us a review 😉 x
